1928 · Kansas Wheat

Age 1

In 1928, Kansas produced one-seventh of the world's wheat crop. Several years later in 1931, Kansas had produced a record breaking 240 million bushels of wheat.


Age 2

13 million people become unemployed after the Wall Street stock market crash of 1929 triggers what becomes known as the Great Depression. President Herbert Hoover rejects direct federal relief.

1951 · The Twenty-Second Amendment

Age 24

Before the Twenty-second Amendment, the Presidency didn’t have a set number limit on how many times they could be elected or re-elected to the office of President of the United States. The Amendment sets that limit to two times, consecutively or not, and sets additional conditions for presidents who succeed to the unexpired terms of their predecessors.

Name Meaning

From the Latin name Caecilia, feminine form of Caecilius ( see Cecil ). This was a good deal more common than the masculine form, largely due to the fame of the 2nd- or 3rd-century virgin martyr whose name is still mentioned daily in the Roman Catholic Canon of the Mass. She is regarded as the patron saint of music and has inspired works such as Purcell's ‘Ode on St Cecilia's Day’, although the reasons for this association are not clear.
